Getting charged when customers contact me is not a model that works for my business. I think it's more fair when I'm charged when I contact them back. Why? Because most of the people who contact me for recording have glossed over or missed a detail in my profile ( e.g., I don't travel to record you, you have to come to me; I don't produce hip-hop; I'm not available that one date in the next week that you've specified; I cant tell from your profile that you're a 12 year old that thinks it'd be fun to record a song and that it should only take an hour of work; etc.). I have fewer and fewer matches than I did when I started with Thumbtack a few years back, so I'm paying money for worthless connections. Will probably need to terminate if they keep up this model.
